WELCOME
SCHEDULE
The New Zealand Marine Sciences Society is excited to invite you to the 2018 Annual Conference to be held in Napier from 3rd - 5th July 2018.

The Conference will cover a diverse range of topics under the theme ‘Weaving the Strands’ - drawing together data, disciplines, and perspectives to tell the NZ marine story.


During the three-day conference, you’ll get a chance to hear from a wide range of researchers, industry leaders, consultants and advisors on all things marine related, anchored by exciting keynotes.  You will also have the opportunity to connect with your colleagues during a range of social activities.

The conference will be held at the new Napier War Memorial Conference Centre, a great venue on Napier’s iconic Marine Parade that looks out on Cape Kidnappers, and the city coastline. Centrally located, the venue is across the road from local hotels, restaurants, and the downtown shopping precinct. 

On behalf of the conference committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Napier in July.

Hilke Giles,
President, NZMSS 2018
